#2,566 Let us not talk of love

Mike Bell/ December 2, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Let us not talk of love
[because too many’ll
trade it off & swap all
of it for mirrors’ eyes
& looks] –
No more a
chance taken –
without such hope –
will use it sparingly &
be wary of its offering
up –
its brimming cup
that spills & stains –
auld age we will retire
from lust
[love’s lively
sister] –
give it time &
all talk of such’ll fade
